Dined here with colleagues. Quick service, burgers great. Nice range of fries with different accompaniments. I had a salad which was generously portioned and very tasty. Would recommend for a casual meal.

Very cool stuff. Lots of concept dishes, names of dishes and good quality meals and combinations you can order. Friendly staff. A bit noisy, so we ate outside. A good location in the middle of town. I recommend, although some dishes a bit pricey.

Do yourself a favour and stop in for one of their delicious burger. Don't be put off by the colour of the charcoal bun it is melt in the mouth. Selection is fantastic and the shakes are not to be missed.
